AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Mirrungun leaves the mangrove country to cause trouble in Ngarun. Old Ngarun sings 'a great big magic song' and Mirrungun splits into smaller and smaller pieces, each a tiny man carrying a tiny spear. This is a retelling of the Dreaming story of the arrival of the mosquito to the north country mangroves.
